Pre-Diabetes - Know The Importance of Portion Control!

Pre-Diabetes - Know The Importance of Portion Control!

Pre-diabetes is a serious medical condition which puts you at higher risk for getting type 2 diabetes. But, there are a number of things that you can do, changes that you can make like avoiding certain foods, controlling the portions of your meal and the number of hours you exercise in a week that will help you prevent type 2 diabetes.

Without pulling any punches, let us say this very clearly that any healthy changes that you make during pre-diabetes will save you from an extremely serious disease called diabetes which kills due to various complications.

Type 2 Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes

  • What happens when you have type 2 diabetes is that your body does not produce enough insulin, the hormone that metabolizes sugar or is not able to use it properly. Your blood sugar therefore, shoots up alarmingly causing all the diabetes symptoms we already know of.
  • Pre-diabetes is a condition when your fasting blood sugar level is above normal. It is diagnosed through a blood test after you have fasted overnight.
  • Normal fasting sugar is 60 to 99 milligrams per deciliter and in pre-diabetes, it is 100 to 125 mg/dl, whereas diabetes sugar is 126 mg/dl or higher on 2 occasions.
  • If you have pre-diabetes, your doctor will counsel you about developing a lifestyle plan to reduce your risk of getting type 2 diabetes.
  • Most recommendations hover around losing 5-10 percent of your body weight if you are obese, more exercise and control of your portion size.

Portion size control for pre-diabetics

  • You will be advised to cut your calorie intake by 250 to 500 hundred calories per day if you are overweight.
  • Certain foods which are basically carbohydrates will go off your plate forever. Carbohydrates are high glycemic index foods as they convert to sugar very fast in the body and trigger insulin.
  • This means sweets, rice, cookies, pasta, chips, desserts, tortillas and even a few fruits which are high in sugar like Litchis and mangoes have to be excised from your pre-diabetes diet plan.
  • And, so should sodas, cold drinks, smoothies, fruit juices alcohol, tea and coffee with sugar…
  • Remember, proper serving size is crucial to preventing full-blown diabetes.
  • Let’s take a look at how you can do this as a pre-diabetic-

Essentially, portion control for pre-diabetics is geared towards managing

  • Calorie intake, especially important for those carrying extra body weight
  • Carbohydrate intake

Managing calorie intake

  • Pre-diabetics should keep the calories from carbs to the minimum. They should get their maximum calories from proteins and fats.
  • Which means their plates should have more lean meats and eggs, less fats and minimum amounts of carbs, like wheat.
  • This has a number of benefits for blood glucose control. Eating more fat and protein-based foods will limit the uptake of sugar from your bloodstream. Fat is insulin-neutral and so are proteins. This means they don’t trigger insulin.
  • Since an increased waist size is associated with decreased sensitivity to insulin, keeping your calories down by eating moderate portions of food is the best way to stop progression to full-blown diabetes.

Managing carbohydrate intake

  • Pre-diabetes means that your body doesn’t tolerate carbohydrates. Think of it like this, in a meal, having half a banana is all your body can tolerate in terms of carbs.
  • Use can also use the plate method which involves dividing up your plate into sections for different food groups. It helps you to keep control of portion sizes as well as helping you to enjoy a well balanced diet. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?
Mr. Lybrate-user, well, if blood sugar levels are in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7, then one may consider taking a spoonful a day. But honey is simply another form of cane sugar, with 50 % fructose & 50% glucose, plus some vitamins and antioxidants. It is bound to increase blood sugar levels almost immediately. Thanks for the question.

Garlic

Garlic also helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels in diabetic people, thanks to its anti-diabetic and hypolipidemic properties. It contains sulfur compounds that protect against oxidative damage and even high cholesterol.

According to a 2011 study published in the Pakistan Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, garlic supplementation with standard anti-diabetic agent provides better blood sugar control in Type 2 diabetics.

A 2014 study published in the Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders suggests that garlic can help treat diabetes and related cardiovascular diseases.
•Eat 2 or 3 raw garlic cloves daily on an empty stomach.
•Also, include garlic in your cooking or take a supplement after consulting a doctor.

I am a diabetic I have one question if medication cant controll using insulin is better? if so why?

Medicine works mostly on your pancreas to stimulate insulin naturally present in your body hence no need to supply from outside in early stage of dm for first few years. But when your pancreatic cells get exaust n cannot work properly your doctor will prescribe you insulin. So no one is better or bad its just a matter of time when to shift you from medication into insulin. Lots of factors like your age. Your hba1c profile etc matters for that. We have best ayurvedic medicine for you contact if possible.

Recommend - start treatment immediately, stop taking sugar in you every day meal. Eat healthy food which contain vitamins and minerals, start exercise. Drink plenty of water. Insulinum 30 schwabe - 2 drops in 1/4 the cup of luke warm water in the morning before meal. Dibonil sbl - 10 drops in 1/4the cup of water, half an hour before meal, 3 times a day normal blood sugars. A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 110 mg/dl. A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dl.

Hello, with hb being so low there is a possibility swelling in the lower limbs. Very low hemoglobin can lead to multiple problems. It is essential to raise the level to at least 12 g/100 ml. 8.7 g is still very low. It does not suggest problem with the liver, but iron deficiency anemia. You will have find out the reason why anemia of such severity has occurred. Usual reasons are inadequate food intake, very low iron content in food taken daily, or some bleeding occurring which may have gone unnoticed, like occult blood loss through stools. Sometimes bleedin peptic ulcers also lead to such a condition. There may be hook worm infestation etc. So you may have to get some investigations done to see why such low hemoglobin has occurred. Thanks.

Is pomegranate, mangoes, bananas bad for diabetics. Which fruits are good for diabetes.
All fruits are good for diabetics, they have to be taken in moderate amounts and at proper time. Fruit juices are harmful as they raise sugar suddenly but fruits contain lot of fibre,raise sugar slowly.

The difference is sr means sustained release, where the drug metformin is released over 12 hrs at a constant rate and the drug action is prolonged. Normal tablet releases the drug in about an hour or so, action lasts for lesser time. Sr tablets also produce lesser gastro intestinal side effects.
